Best Ice Cream in the La Crescenta area

I have a friend who is moving there and loves ice cream. I wanted to get some gift certificates for ice cream in the area. Thanks.

    Black Cow Cafe on Honolulu Ave serves exclusively Fosselman's and you can buy it by the scoop or larger quantities.

        Fosselman's is ten miles away but it's almost all freeway. Probably the best ice cream* in SoCal ...

        * as opposed to gelato ..

          "as opposed to gelato"

          If gelato is an acceptable substitute, some of the very best gelato in SoCal is available 9 miles away at Bulgarini Gelato in Altadena:

          Bulgarini Gelato
          749 E Altadena Dr, Altadena, CA 91001

          Note that they have unusual hours.
